"Perry Kurtz is VERY unusual. Before he even speaks a word, there are four minutes of continuous laughter. He possesses the `boy-next-door' quality, like Dana Carvey and Kevin Pollack, that makes you laugh at/with him. Every show is as unique as he is. Outrageous, strange, yet extremely likable, Perry Kurtz is a performer who MUST be seen to be believed." San Francisco Calendar Magazine
"Kurtz was unstoppable. Even the natives feared him." Martin Sheen, Apocalypse Now
"If I was as funny as Perry Kurtz, maybe I wouldn't abuse my wives." Charlie Sheen, Malibu County Jail.
